Gloucestershire law firm expands thanks to acquisition

A Cheltenham patent and trademark specialist has announced the purchase of a rival business.

Albright IP has acquired the client portfolio of JDIP Ltd following the retirement of its founder John Dean.

Since its launch in 2015 JDIP Ltd has earned a strong reputation as a key player in the intellectual property sector in the South West.

Robert Games, managing director at Albright IP, said: “We have made a deal to purchase the clients of the company. Most of the clients have now been engaged with and are moving forward with Albright IP.

“We look forward to working with JDIP’s clients and showcasing the broad range of IP sector experts we have within Albright IP.

“Clients will also benefit from our in-house trade mark department, which will be able to support the branding exercises of clients’ moving forwards.”

Albright IP’s expanded team will now work with former JDIP clients.

The acquisition allows Albright IP to strengthen its already extensive presence across the South West, particularly in Bristol.

Robert Games added: “We’re delighted to be involved in assisting some of the clients who are on growth journeys of their own and have significant IP interests. We’re looking forward to supporting them in that process.

“I would also like to thank John Dean for approaching Albright IP and giving us the opportunity to expand our client base and develop our firm further throughout the South West.”
